I am burnt out again..for real. I need to take a step back from social media, trying to build a career, grinding / overworking, and unrealistic / soul-crushing expectations and pressures. I see it as downright disrespectful to expect myself to keep working and have my body literally die and give up on me.
The biggest lesson is that work is not life, and it's not worth it to put work over one's health. You don't always have to have everything figured out in your life. It's okay to rest in uncertainty.
So I'll step away for the month of June ( at least ). I need to step up and heal. It's frustrating that as soon as I have the time to try and put in effort into this, I get burnt out. But it is what it is, and my health is my highest priority. Burnout came from things outside of this, from other areas of my life. I suppose recovering from burnout isn't as 'easy' as I'd thought.
I'll see you again when I come back and am actually refreshed and 'reborn' ( in a sense ). My aim would be to return in July, but I don't want to put any expectations on returning so soon.
